Chronic, Non-Communicable Diseases and Disorders Across the Lifespan: Fogarty International Research Training Award (NCD-LIFESPAN) (D43)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the Fogarty International Center (FIC), encourages applications for the Chronic, Non-Communicable Diseases and Disorders Across the Lifespan: Fogarty International Research Training Award (NCD-LIFESPAN) D43 program for collaborative research training between institutions in the U.S. and low-and middle-income countries (LMIC), defined by the World Bank classification system. The proposed institutional research training program is expected to sustainably strengthen the research capacity of the LMIC institutions, and to train in-country experts to conduct research on chronic, non-communicable diseases and disorders across the lifespan, with the ultimate goal of implementing evidence-based interventions relevant to their countries.

Applicant institutions may submit no more than two new, scientifically and regionally distinct and non-overlapping, applications (excluding revised resubmission applications) per receipt date under this FOA. No more than three, scientifically and regionally distinct and non-overlapping competing or non-competing continuation awards will be made to a single U.S. or LMIC institution at any given time. A given U.S. institution may only have one active NCD-LIFESPAN award for collaboration with a given LMIC institution.

Any interested faculty will need to submit an abstract, CV and budget to Dean Puzas (Catherine_muzytchuk@urmc.rochester.edu) using the words “NCD-LIFESPAN” in the subject field by December 28, 2012. The Deans will select a candidate by January 7, 2013.

The complete program solicitation can be found at http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-257.html. The deadline for the optional letter of intent is March 17, 2013. Full proposals are due April 17, 2013.
